A new and potentially revolutionary anti-aging pill could help extend your lifespan by 50 years by regenerating your organs, said Harvard Professor David Sinclair and his team of researchers.
The program, developed by the University of New South Wales research team, involves reprogramming cells that allow humans to regenerate organs. Sinclair believes that the process could even help patients with paralysis to move again.
The researchers have performed successful tests on mice, with the mice reportedly increasing their life expectancy by at least 10 percent. Human trials could begin as early as 2020, reports the Daily Mail .
Sinclair says the pills that have already been tested on humans within his family have a lot of positive side effects including the reduction of hair loss due to aging as well as increased metabolism in the elderly.
Perhaps one of the most amazing aspects of the new breakthrough is its cost. Sinclair and his research team say the pills could hit the market in the next five years and cost you as much as your daily cup of coffee.
Despite the fantastic initial results, Sinclair has warned the public to wait (1

– David Sinclair (@davidasinclair) February 16, 2018  NAD refers to the molecule nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a chemical that is already used to treat Parkinson's disease. Sinclair has claimed that although the trials on humans will take another two years, he has already seen positive results with the pills he has used on himself and his father. Sinclair claims that he has reduced his biological age by 24, while his 79-year-old father feels fitter than ever before and is now in advanced age rafting and backpacking. Sinclair even claims that his sister-in-law, who had suffered from menopause, is fertile after using the molecule-loaded pills.
The results of using the NAD molecule and the pill appear to sound too good to be true. Sinclair claims that it is only a matter of time before the general public can see the benefits to themselves. So far, however, no long-term effects of the pill have been found since no clinical studies have been performed.
Nevertheless, the NAD molecule with anti-aging pills could become the biggest scientific breakthrough of this century, if it succeeds perhaps one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time.
